Swing Time

Listening to the podcast Pop Culture Happy Hour, one of the hosts declared Swing Time the best movie of all time. Upon renting it I can see why. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing together are a marvel to watch. Now I know where the song The Way You Look Tonight comes from. In the story Astaire's character is a cad and pursues Rogers' character while engaged to another woman. His roguish ways were a bit off-putting to me, but I can see how they were considered charming when this film was made. A must-see for the dancing.
